Police: One shot in argument between tow truck drivers in Pittsburgh
An argument between two truck drivers responding to an accident Saturday in Pittsburgh led to a shooting, police said.
The shooting occurred at 3:40 p.m. in the 900 block of Washington Boulevard near Shetland, according to Alicia George, Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman.
An earlier accident on Washington Boulevard drew multiple tow trucks. Two truck drivers started arguing, according to George.
“One went to his truck, grabbed a bat, and approached the other unidentified driver,” she said.
Then the unidentified driver pulled out a gun and shot the driver who was holding the bat, she said.
The victim was transported to an unnamed Pittsburgh hospital in critical condition.
George said no one had been arrested Saturday evening.
